Jonathon Porritt, Farhana Yamin - Rathbones : The Earth Convention
The Earth Convention - Energy and Finance
Our second event in the Earth Convention series looks at creating a green transition in energy and finance that can help us move towards a sustainable recovery from the pandemic. How is business organising itself for climate action? How can the power of the financial industry, not least in the City of London, drive green investment? How do we ensure international development is sustainable? What is the role for market mechanisms and how much can individuals - as shareholders, for example - influence business investment and behaviour? We will look at technology, the role of the state and lessons from the 2008 financial crisis.
